This was an extremely comfortable and inviting place to stay. The facilities were clean and what we needed. The staff were just amazing and made you feel like you were dining at their family home for dinner. Even lit the fire in the restaurant!!! It was a great place to stay and would certainly recommend!!! Thanks so much - Danny...

I loved the view!! Beautiful window overlooking the bay. Great place to watch the birds. Bottle shop, restaurant and bar on location. The bathroom layout was a bit odd, but it was clean and comfortable.

The Fox and Hound has been around for decades and showing signs of age. Many other reviews indicate this well enough. Our room was big, comfy, good view, clean.. everything we needed was as it should be. The location is very good for tourists visiting the region and the price is good value. The restaurant and the friendly service make...

We booked a Spa Suite with a view of the water. The room provided could hardly be a suite consisting of a bedroom, bathroom and a small refrigerator. The room was superficially clean but very much neglected in respect of window frames, screens etc. which harbour dead insects and need a good scrub. The property dates from the 1970s and...

Thank you for taking the time to comment. We agree the property has been neglected but are pleased to advise the new owners are refurbishing and renovating the entire property. This has started in areas not obvious to the traveller but essential to the building. A note about breakfast. The charge is only $12 per person and provides toast, cereals,...

We chose to stay here due to its proximity to the Port Arthur Historic site. Pub was rustic and character filled as befitted an English Tudor tavern. Motel rooms were spacious and we had a nice view of the water at the back of the property. Linen was clean but other furnishings (carpet, lounge, curtains) were dated and bathroom needs...

We chose this Inn for its location and were pleased with that. The accommodation is so-so. It could do with a bit of a face-lift on the inside. I do think that the price is too high for what you get but there is not much competition in the area.

We wanted to visit Port Arthur and this was one of the few hotels we found that was nearby and it had a pub. The rooms are slightly dated but we had a decent water view of a pretty bay. Rooms were clean, there was a washer and dryer available. The pub was good enough after a long day of...

While staying in Port Arthur we came across this amazing Mock Style Tudor Pub. We only utilised the bottle shop and bar but there is accomodation as well as a restaurant. Friendly staff. #crazycarrsgapyear #jandaljournals
